Notice 2006-59 Notice 2006-59

Disaster leave-sharing plans. This notice describes certain leave-sharing plans under which employees may deposit leave in an employer-sponsored leave bank for use by other employees who have been adversely affected by a major disaster. For a plan that meets the requirements of this notice, the IRS will not assert that an employee who deposits leave under the plan realizes income or has wages or compensation with respect to the deposited leave, provided the plan treats payments made by the employer to a leave recipient as wages and compensation. No deduction is allowed to an employee who deposits leave.
